Scripted Packaging of Workflow

Im trying to use Github actions to publish workflows to Alteryx server using the v3 API and see the workflows endpoint only accepts yxzp files. Is it possible to convert an Alteryx workflow into a yxzp without using the export function of Alteryx designer?

Yes, it is certainly possible. A yxzp is basically a specially-formatted ZIP file. Here are 2 threads which discuss it and have some example code:

Perfect thanks, it's the special formatting bit that I didn't know about and google foo failed
